Below the Waves Timmy's Quest by Christopher Trefz Book Review

I read Below the Waves Timmy's Quest to a group of 25 kindergarten through 3rd graders.  They really liked it!  As we were reading the book the children were commenting on the illustrations-they liked the subtle colors and the soft lines.  The illustrations appear to be pencil drawn and shaded then filled with colors!  
A few comments the children shared were:
"There aren't many stories about an octopus."
"I like the colors."
"The ocean looks like a fun place to visit but not live-I would be wet all the time!"
"Timmy must have been scared to travel so far from home."
"Timmy was smart to use the chest to carry his clams."
"Timmy can't use the gold because they don't use money in the ocean."

Below the Waves Timmy's Quest certainly gave my kiddos something to think about!  We are planning to read it again-it is a great book to share with little ones-the book was easy to understand and used simple language.  Also great pictures to talk about.  The children really liked Timmy and was worried about him and how the story would end up.  

A great addition to any child's library!

This book was given to My Milwaukee Mommy by Christopher Trefz.  The opinions in this review are truthful and my one (as well as a group of my children).
